The Ithaca Undoing Racism Workshop is being organized and hosted by The Groundswell Center for Local Food & Farming, the Multicultural Resource Center, the Youth Farm Project and Tommy Miller, and can only accommodate a limited number of individuals.
We are grateful to the Park Foundation for a mini-grant that directly supports tuition assistance to over 50% of workshop participants.
While there are organizations in Ithaca providing anti-racism education, the objectives of bringing the People’s Institute to Ithaca are to:
- Cultivate a shared language around racism, white privilege, equity and diversity within an organization’s staff and board to inform recruitment, hiring and retention
- Establish a cohort of local graduates who identify actionable steps towards undoing racism in Ithaca and surrounding areas and commit to post workshop collaboration
- Enable local social justice leaders to participate in a workshop with peers, co-workers and community members
- Call-in people in decision making positions to understand why race is central to multiple sectors including food, education, policy, social services, foundations and private business
- Build our community’s capacity to undo racism and implement anti-racist strategies and policies
